However, there is an evil which surrounds us all and is found in organisations which are meant to defend us, but which treat us like cattle - the CIA, MI5's of this world follow the orders of the Committee of 300, whose fingers are in every pie. These are the people who would love to experiment on us and it is these people who wouldl authorise this sort of secret research. Take a look at the names and you may be shocked if you are British.
Another question I'm wondering say we did learn the whole body genetic codes and could "reshape a person" or "reverse aging" wouldn't the costs be great like what could happen because of this the world lives in chain reactions. What would come of this what than moving the mind and soul of a person to a engineered body? Seriously what would be the cause and effect I seen in the replies someone mentioned that the creation would have it's own free who's to say implanting which could become reality would have ups and downs it makes me wonder what can and would be the effects and consequences of as most say this "playing god?"
Our measurements suggest that the average displacement from a single myosin molecule is about 10 nanometres (a millionth of a centime-tre), with typical forces of only a few piconewtons(10-12newtons). These values are important parameters inany theoretical model that tries to explain the physiology of muscles from the bottom upwards.
Muscle contraction is achieved by sliding two kinds of filaments past one another. One of these filaments is made of myosin (the motor), the other of a substance called actin (see figure). The two kinds of filaments overlap in the muscle cells to maximise their interactions. Just like a more familiar engine, myosin operates in a cyclical manner, as shown in the figure on the next page, to ensure energy is used efficiently. During each cycle, the myosin molecules first bind to the actin filament, bridging the gap between the two filaments. Then, they ‘burn’ fuel by reacting with one ATP molecule (the fuel of most biological processes). This reaction releases ener- gy and makes the myosin molecules undergo a transformation that causes them to swing their ‘lever arm’ struc- ture and pull on the actin filament. They then release the actin filament and swing the lever arm back to its original position, ready for the next cycle. During each cycle, the two fila- ments slide past each other by a short distance – this is the basis of muscle contraction. The forces and move- ments produced by a single cycle are minute, but the combination of mil- lions of myosin molecules acting simultaneously amplifies the effect by many orders of magnitude
Technology is a fine thing, but just because you can do a thing, does not mean its a good idea to do it.

Here's my question: why haven't they perfected their techniques on other, smaller, more expendable mammals first?
